Not too long ago there was a so-called public outcry and certainly a media outcry about the Bush administration's or the government's general intrusion into our lives. Where is that outcry now?
The Obama administration's intrusions into our life are unprecedented! Not only has it dived into the private sector, but it has all but taken over the public sector as well. The so-called bailouts of the banking, insurance and auto industries are proof of that. The government mandates associated with these bailouts are by definition socialism.
The falsehood of man-made global warming is another government excuse to levy large taxes on the public and private sectors, in order to switch capital from one part of the population to the other -- again socialism. Even at the state level, our doom-and-gloom governor uses scare tactics to push for huge tax increases, saying government programs will suffer if he does not get them. Government programs again -- socialism!
Then there is government-run health care. Let's not even get into what a mess that would be.
